Hi @JorgeBolumar,
your code is right, I copied and pasted your code and got your error, but after formatting it like this I passed the test.

</main>

This is your code formatted.

If you’re still having trouble try disabling exstensions like Dark Mode, AdBlock and set your browser zoom to 100%.

I hope I was helpful. :wave:

I think your issue is with the capital C in
cat of cat photo url inside input placeholder.
Your input should be lower case like:
<input type = "text" placeholder = "cat photo URL" >
and not:
<input type = "text" placeholder = "Cat photo URL" >
Hope it helps

Thanks to everyone who replied. Apparently the problem was the capital C inside placeholder, I don’t understand why anyway. Thanks @tom3 !!!

@JorgeBolumar Maybe it is because the test code is comparing the input tag and its code as is. So when the text inside changes, its identifying it as a change to the input element. The next time when freeCodeCamp provides pre written code, try not to change it in anyway.
Happy Coding :sparkles:
